OHAYO

 

Erin Di Fiore is a New York based artist living on Ohayo Mountain, after which her company is named. Raised in Decatur, Georgia, Erin’s fond memories of fiber art in her childhood home have always evoked a sense of calm. She now has several of those pieces, one created by her mother, on the walls of her Woodstock home.

Creative expression was instilled from a young age and fostered throughout her education. While studying at the University of Georgia she was fortunate to spend time in London interning with world-renowned textile designer Zandra Rhodes and the Fashion & Textile Museum. After more than a decade in New York City working for luxury fashion brands Dolce & Gabbana, Marc Jacobs and Reem Acra, Erin relocated to Upstate New York.

Surrounded by the expansive landscape of the Catskills, Erin’s passion to create working with fibers as a medium was inspired. She is now focused on honing her own aesthetic, embarking on her own small business and striving to create on a daily basis. Erin also teaches Ohayo macramé workshops in the surrounding community and beyond sharing the serenity of this meditative craft.
